AWESOME THING WE ATE #903: Every Taco We Tried At La Taqueria Food Truck On 4th

IMG_8133

La Taqueria recently parked a food truck in Kitsilano. It’s a colourful one (complete with pastel pink hubcaps), so it’s hard to miss across the street from Bishop’s where West 4th meets Yew, right in front of the new location of 49th Parallel. The tacos really hit the spot. In the photos above you can see the Pescado with chipotle mayo, radish and pepitas – one of the best fish tacos in town [1]; the Al Pastor with achiote-marinated pork and pineapple [2]; the chicken and chorizo Tinga de Pollo in chipotle tomato sauce with sour cream[3]; and the Rajas Con Crema – a veggie version with creamed corn, Mexican cheese and roasted poblanos [4]. They’re exactly the same as the ones you get at their two brick and mortar taquerias, which is to say that they’re delicious (with a nice selection of salsas, too). They don’t sell cold drinks, so pop inside 49th Parallel for something chilled (they had a delicious blueberry iced tea) and, of course, one of their decadent donuts for dessert. Check them out for cheap eats from noon until 4pm on weekdays.
